Toward Parity Initiative

UBCM and FCM wish to thank participants who joined the Toward Parity webinar on March 5th. If you missed the webinar and want to learn more about the initiative, you can find all webinar materials on our website.

Webinar participants had an opportunity to provide feedback and comments on barriers to women participating in local government, and identify potential courses of action at the local, regional and national level to address those barriers. 

Once regional consultations are completed, FCM will be reaching out with a follow up survey mid-March. UBCM will share the survey link with members as soon as it is available. Survey responses will then be compiled into a draft action plan that will be presented to delegates at the FCM AGM on May 30th.

Implementation of the action plan will begin in August 2019 and will include funding for demonstration projects over September 2019 to June 2020.
